Proven Reliability, Advanced Control

MEI’s Advancer platform of wet benches offer flexible configurations that provide effective solutions to many wet processing solutions.  The Advancer is available as full-auto or semi-auto, stand-alone or modular. The system is suitable for a wide variety of etch, strip and clean applications for semiconductor processing. Applications include wet processing for IC devices, medical device, MEMS, LED and III-V Compounds. The Advancer wet bench offers many features to optimize the process chemical requirements such as bulk chemical calls and status, chemical spiking, and “in-tank” blending of chemistries monitored by IDX Flexware. With an extremely small footprint, the MEI Advancer Wet Bench provides wet processing solutions for fabs with limited production space. The Advancer wet bench is a field-proven platform providing reliability, configurability, increased up-time and yield. All are the hallmarks of an MEI wet processing system. Solutions that are Built on Commitment

NEW!  Dry In Dry out processing with the Genesis Marangoni Dryer


Highly Configurable, Modular Designed Wet Bench

With up to four modules utilizing one robot per wet station module. The host computer drives all robots independently, enabling any combination of simultaneous or asynchronous processing in each module of varying recipes. This multiple recipe multiple lot processing is made possible by using MEI proprietary IDX Flexware Process Control Software. IDX Flexware provides superior process control capabilities for your semiconductor wet processing along with the highest degree of maintenance flexibility compared with a PLC control based system. The Advancer wet processing robots are located outside of the process area and are not exposed to chemical fumes, resulting in higher reliability, ease of maintenance and lower overall expense over the life of the wet bench.
